Lifelong Ohio State fan. Born and raised on the Ohio River on my grandpappy's farm where I learned two important life lessons: 1, Always treat people how you'd want to be treated. 2, Three yards and a cloud of dust! One of my earliest memories as a child is watching OSU game replays on the local WOSU channel with Paul Warfield announcing. I grew up in southern Ohio and have lived all over the state including Chillicothe and Cleveland. I've been known to scream at the TV when Ohio State plays. I go all in every game hence why my screen name is IN ALL CAPS. When Ohio State loses I am sick to my stomach for several days afterward. When they win it's like freaking Christmas. I hate Michigan. I hate them more than Khan hated Captain Kirk. Michigan sucks. I also hate the SEC. Go Bucks!

  • SPORTS MOMENT: My best personal sports moment was my 1 tackle in high school in the 1989 OHSAA Division IV state championship game at Ohio Stadium on the old field turf. To play an actual game on the same turf Woody walked on will always be the greatest sports moment of my life. That and OSU's 2002 national championship game win over Miami. I cried tears of utter joy after that win.

Not sure what I find more alarming. A thread questioning Meyer's 25-2 start at OSU or the fact he was lumped in with two of the biggest lumps in college football in Hoke and Muschamp. I'd expect this after a 2-25 start but this? smh.

I just watched the highlights from the VT-W&M game and noticed two important things:

1. VT's offense is almost identical to Sparty's. Brewer looks just like Connor Cook in the pocket and VT's RBs are powerful and run hard. Receivers don't run anything elaborate but are effective. OL is solid.

2. VT's DL is rock solid. I'd say a notch below OSU's but still better than Navy's. We wont put up 30+ points on them.

I'm sticking to my pick that OSU wins 17-16. I think this could very well play out much like the 2012 MSU game. We play toe-to-toe with VT for 3 1/2 quarters and manage to pull away late.

Fair grades of the performance. If the OL has at least a B grade the game is a blowout. Just comes to show the margin for error is so slim in college football. The comforting thing is we have Ed Warinner.

The WMDs are great. I laughed at the Charlie and the Chocolate Factory missing chapter line...

High on the mountain, the workers – who have not yet become the Oompa Loompas – sing "Eight little children, such charming little chicks. But two of them said 'Nuts to you', and then there were six."

Yes, I would imagine children in 1964 reading that characters were chopped to death would've been rather traumatic lol

Let them hate on JT. It will be sweet to watch him prove them wrong and put them all in their places. Then when those same writers start singing his praises we can all call them out for it, with proof.

Navy was a terrible team for us to discern anything about the defense just from the strict assignment mode of this game and the fact they threw so few times. The Buckeye defenders practiced and practiced on being in a certain spot on every play. There was ZERO room for improvisation or creativity. Miss an assignment and you get a long run (like what we saw). Ash's revamped defense was not and is not going to be perfect so quickly, especially when it was so schematically handcuffed yesterday.

People forget that we were also playing against highly-trained military personnel who are taught to be super efficient at everything they do outside of football. Of course they're going to execute their offense perfectly. It's their nature. They would've run for 250-300 on anyone.

I doubt VT will run against that DL.

Super pumped about next Saturday night. Wish I could be there.

1. It was said yesterday the OL got better when they put Hale in at guard. My guess is Joel starts vs. VT. It also looks as if Boren has separated himself from Lindsay.

2. One thing I noticed that I like, the LBs not only look quicker but are MUCH bigger. Thank you, Mickey.

3. Lots of people unhappy with the total rushing yards the D gave up. The cut blocks were the only thing that allowed most of them. I think Navy would still rush for 250-300 against anyone else including Sparty.

4. JT doesn't throw that pick he was nearly flawless. Better start than I ever could have imagined.

5. DasBoot indeed!

Question, did Kwon play? I didn't see him.

Comment 30 Aug 2014

Entirely possible VT was overlooking that game. I expect them to come out and give us a big time fight. They're Virginia Tech.

Comment 30 Aug 2014

There were lots of problems but I kept going back to the OL as the biggest. The DL and LBs are solid, JT will get better and it's evident we're going to have a solid RB by committee this year where we may have a different leading rusher every week. But getting stopped on 4th down by Navy's defense? Not a good sign. Coach Warinner is definitely going to earn his paycheck this season.

The offseason does have one silver lining, it reminds us how friggin awesome the season is (because the alternative stinks). Do us proud Buckeyes!

Comment 29 Aug 2014

Well, I'm in love now

and LMAO @ the guy in the red striped shirt

Comment 29 Aug 2014

I guessed 29-14 but I'd happily take 31-17. 30 PPG with an entire new offense is more than acceptable, especially if the D is fixed.

Don't want to be so sloshed that you don't even remember watching the game. Start drinking an hour before and pace yourself. Patience grasshopper.

The one time my HS played a team that cut blocked I remember the special drills we went through on the DL to prepare for it. Mostly the drills were used to help keep you on your feet because once you're on the ground or on your knees you're effectively out of the play. We also worked on using our hands to force that cut-blocking player into the turf since they're already so low to the ground to begin with by trying to cut block you. Just shove their faces into the ground and step over them. The better our DL stays on its feet the better the D will play. If you see lots of Buckeye defenders on the ground be worried.
